Food for Life feeds people – now they can help their partners ensure that their staff and premises are kept clean.

“Supporting our local communities has always been a part of what we do at Ford of Canada,” said Bev Goodman, president, and CEO, Ford Motor Company of Canada, Ltd. “We’re pleased to be donating $100,000-worth of hand sanitizer to an organization like Food for Life who will distribute it where it’s needed most, across more than 80 community groups that it serves.”

The distribution of hand sanitizer to partner organizations ensures that community members not only have access to healthy food, but that they also have access to much-needed, and often costly, Personal Protective Equipment.

“Ford’s donation to Food for Life is a testament to the generous and cooperative nature of our community,” said Graham Hill, Executive Director of Food for Life. “We are honoured and thankful that Ford of Canada entrusted the team at Food for Life to ensure this sanitizer reaches the organizations who need it most.”

This most recent donation is not the first time Ford has stepped up to address food security across the region; each year a number of Ford employees support Food for Life by volunteering their time for food sorts as well as other activities.

Food for Life is a community leader in ensuring everyone has access to healthy food. GOOD food, impacting lives.
